Hi,
I am working on a dashboards home page. My idea is to have some gadgets or widgets (whats exactly is the difference :/) to display the dashboards.
I have seen some gadgets where you can move them around the page i.e change the positions such that the other will replace it - same as iphone icons :)
The first one I am sure is possible but my idea is to have a menu bar from which you can drag and drop itams (not on the page itself but in the gadgets displayed on the page - assuming that each gadget is a page itself and it should be able to pick up if I drop a url/link in it)

Idea is to provide users with customizable front page. Where they can select the desired dashboars (either from the menu - drag/drop or what I have seen before i.e go to edit page select and have it displayed) and be able to set is as a default page.

Is there an existing framework or plugin I can use otherwise please guide to a helpful tutorial (I have seen many but not sure if would be ideal for me or which would actually support what I am trying to do)?


thanks

Look @ ExtJS. I think you want something like this example: http://dev.sencha.com/deploy/dev/examples/portal/portal.html

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

thanks.
I was thinking if I could get the code for the exact example that you pasted earlier.
It would be much quicker :)
I may not even have to design the panels, just alter it a little according to the requirements if it comes with css ;)

I get to see the rest but not this one particular portal/portal.html
Is it the access issue? Or does it only come with full download?
